    Nice atmosphere, food was good but we were a party of 6 and we didn’t get all our meals at the same time which was too bad but waiter offered us a free grappa shot. Would try it again.

    The food was very good. The cavatelli was great! The service needs help. The main server did not mention specials of the night and we ended up changing our order as the specials were being served to other customers. The vibe was missing as well.

    Food was tasty and well presented. Pizza was delicious, and most at our table wished they had ordered pizza😊, the acoustics make it very loud in the dining room, but we managed and all agreed to return.

    I’ve heard great things about Keste and follow on Instagram, however, a bit disappointed. Caprese salad $21 for 4 slices of cheese and tomato and no bread. Pizza took long - another table go theirs first while we ordered way before them. It came to us cold and not well cooked. Unfortunately, it was not a great experience. But the outside terrace was very nice and drinks were great!

    I have been searching for a Neapolitan restaurant where the food would taste like my Mom’s cooking. Fortunately I came across Keste and GianLuca and I honestly have to say it met all my expectations. The food was like a taste of home. The service was great, very friendly and attentive. You must try the pizza fritta, delicious, everything was delicious. Can’t wait to go back.

    If you want authentic Neapolitan (South Italian) cuisine, this is the place to go. We had the: Montanara Panzerotti Paccheri with basil pesto and pancetta Tiramisu Grappa Cammomilla Every dish perfectly balanced in flavours where you can really appreciate every single ingredient in the dish and the freshness that it brings. The service was phenomenal from the waiters to the chef. Chef Gianluca has 30 + years experience in this industry and is the friendliest and most humble person. Overall really lovely experience tonight. Will continue to back until I’ve tasted everything in the menu (which changes every week lol)!

    My party of 8 spent 4 hours instead of 2 due to service problems. Slow, errors in 3 of 8 orders and 3 tries to get the bills correct. Manager offered discount as apology. Good quality food but a shared appetizer was pricey at $160. Vodka martini was watery, lemony, and not dry as ordered.

    Very slow service, waiter forgot about us constantly and then made poor taste jokes to cover for it. I understand that they are short staffed, but I went to Keste once years ago and remember the service being slow and bad too. Clearly nothing has changed.

    The food was fantastic, drinks were great. The service was not very good. Waiter dropped food on my wife, appologized at least 8 different times. I'll blame covid and being short staffed for the bad service this time around.

    I went to Kesté because I always had a good time there and the food was always delicious. I was bringing a friend who wanted to discover a new place. The loud disco music was a disgrace, the service was fine except for the very long time between the entrée and the pizza. The pizza was soggy and I’m sorry to have to say that.

    It was a joke. We reserved for 8:00 pm tonight, a Saturday night and when we got there, the hostess told us that they were overbooked. They did apologize and offer us free drinks, all of which we refused because it was late and we were hungry. Why didn’t they call us when they realized the fuckup and offer to rebook us on another night? This evening was special for us; we were so disappointed. Once there, they never offered us a discount for when we come back. So unprofessional, not to mention how crowded and unsafe the place was.
